This Week in 1977

Joey 1

In 1977, on February 16 and 17 (and possibly longer... I can't remember, although Flipside Fanzine, which gets its gig info from old newspaper ads says it was thru the 20th), The Ramones headlined the Whisky a Go Go. It was their sophomore visit to Los Angeles, returning to sunny LA during the coldest month of the year (February - in their native NY)... it was like Beatlemania - the screaming, excited fans... the now-familiar non-stop no-nonsense ploughing through a set with just Dee Dee yelling 1, 2, 3, 4 in between songs. Yeah... Ramones... good times 1977...

nothing more needs to be said... except... today, it's all pictures of Joey. Stay tuned for more Ramones as the days go by.
